    1. "Brooklyn teacher who says she was sexually tormented by students wins $450,000 settlement

    2. Theresa Reel says students and staff at High School for Legal Studies in Williamsburg 'treated her like dirt.' She says students flung condoms at her and rubbed against her breasts

    3. Her pleas to school bosses were met with accusations that she showed too much cleavage, she charged.

    4. When she told then-Principal Denise Morgan that she made a student leave the class for sexual comments, the official’s response was: “And how does that threaten you?”

    5. Morgan defended her handling of Reel’s complaints.
    “I am very comfortable with the professional manner in which I responded to this teacher’s concerns,” she told The News.

    6. Reel’s court papers detail the barrage of X-rated insults she faced in the classroom and corridors.
    One boy allegedly told her: “I’ve got rubbers — want to party?” Another student accused a classmate of performing a sex act on Reel for good grades, she said."

    What is the reason that this principal has 'sovereign immunity'? I'd like to see her kick in some of the money that we taxpayers are on the hook to pay!

    And how is it that the same behavior exhibited by the students in question would have gotten them arrested on a subway....but a pat on the head in the school system??

    How can we hold teachers responsible for teaching under these conditions??




    The answer: politics.

    Schools under the control of educrats, and populated by OWS-in-training.

    Our society is doomed by cowardice.


    True?

    These animals shouldn't be allowed to act like that toward anyone, especially a teacher. I don't care what she looks like.

    Schools are not solely run by democrats.

    Although I agree, the principle should at the very least be fired over the poor handling of this situation.

    I'm not saying to legislate it but discipline is gone from the schools in this country, the kids know it and they can pretty much do or say anything they want without any real consequence.

    My sil is a public school teacher at an inner city school. The stories she brings home make me shudder.I really don't know how she does it and still manages to find enjoyment in her job.

    OK....Off the top of my head....

    1. Teachers should be allowed a contractual number of 'peremptory challenges,' as lawyers get for potential jurors....to remove students from their classes.


    2. After three 'removals,' as student must be transferred to another school.

    3. With this new power, the success, i.e., student achievement, of the teacher determines re-hiring. No tenure.



    So...would this restore discipline.....and weed out the professionals?

    "Schools are not solely run by democrats."


    Hmm.........

    .....the OP didn't mention "Democrats."


    Seems that Shakespeare knew you might be feeling a little guilty here....
